Synopsis

Robert Shaw and Sarah Miles star in this dark and powerful story of loneliness, loss and destructive passion from the pen of L.P. Hartley (The Go-Between).





Shattered by the death of her husband, Lady Helen Franklin (Sarah Miles) is confined to a sanatorium. When she is at last released, she struggles to rebuild her life, striking up a nervous and hesitant relationship with her chauffeur, Steven Ledbetter (Robert Shaw). As the months progress, Lady Helen becomes more and more reliant on his company and Steven finds himself drawn to Lady Helen in turn.





The promise of a forbidden relationship hangs over them – until Lady Helen meets the charming and aristocratic Captain Hugh Cantrip (Peter Egan), her social equal.





What Lady Helen doesn’t know is that both the roughly hewn Ledbetter and the smooth Cantrip are concealing secrets from her – and that she is trapped in a love triangle that could explode into a violent and heartbreaking confrontation
